News Tribune, March 12, 1994 A yearlong police investigation into the fire that destroyed UMD's historic Old Main ended yesterday with the arrest of a Duluth man charged with second-degree arson. Old Main, which closed in 1985, was on the National Register of Historic Places. The controversial plans for an outlet mall just west of Duluth's Bayfront Park still hinge on a land deal. The land, owned by Richard Amatuzio and home to Northstar Marine, is currently tied up in negotiation.
